    Thanks for the concise and intriguing review – Looks like an interesting read!

    On a side note, here is a rather accessible approach to finding what is missing (from pp. 162-163 of “Practical Mapping”). First, create a knowledge map of your topic (concepts in boxes, connected by arrows representing causal connections between them). Then, identify all concepts/boxes where there is only one (or none) causal arrows pointing toward it. Each of those shows a gap in knowledge. That gap may be filled by identifying additional causal arrows between existing concepts (through primary or secondary research, or bringing in more diverse expertise). If the gaps are not filled by connecting existing concepts, more concepts are added. Essentially, expanding the breadth and improving the systemic structure of the map – and so making it more useful for understanding situations and making effective decisions.
